Kay Lanceley is under no illusion. Her role as key advisor on a retrospective exhibition of work by Colin Lanceley, her late husband, comes with a burden of personal gravity.
“It’s my last hurrah – the last thing I can do for Colin,” Kay says.
At 84, she can certainly lay claim to unique qualifications for the job. She was with the artist “every day for 50 years”.
The National Art School in Darlinghurst will honour its alumnus and former teacher with Colin Lanceley: Earthly Delights which will run from June 24 until August 12 at the beautiful NAS Gallery.
